File not found, but path is ok...

I get a 'File not found e:\Delphi6\lib\hyperstr.pas' when I try to compile my program.

I placed Hyperstr.dcu (I dont have the .pas) in \lib, and included lib in both library path and browsing path. What's the deal with the .pas? I've done this in Delphi5 and it works. Should work in Delphi6 too, shouldnt it? Why does it insist on having the .pas file?

Thanks in advance

the dcu must be from the same delphi version,
whereas the pas could be version-independend

if your dcu does not match your delphi version,
then delphi tries to recompile it, with usage of the associated pas-file

Yep. See if the author of the component has an upgraded version for D6. If not then unfortunately you are out of luck without the *.pas file. Bummer. :>(

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

sorry to say,
but the dcu's are
not version compatible,
also not minor compatible
a d3-dcu will not work with d3.02

What you COULD do is to take that dcu's functionality and compile it (in the version of Delphi that it is designed for) into a DLL which you could then call from the Delphi 6 application. Not the prettiest solution, but it works.

Good luck!!
